The past weekend was all about small victories. I consider myself a mature enough person to handle most of the adult stuff, but little did I know that choosing floor tiles for our house will be a pain. DA POGI and I spent almost 2 hours inside the builder store, just trying to come to a compromise as to which tiles are the best for our new abode. I tend to lean towards the more conservative, thus boring, whites and beiges. My husband leaned towards the more mediterranian, choosing ochres and reds. We settled on having ochre flooring in the first floor and having slightly lighter coloring on the stairs. Now we have to wait another week just to see if the color combination that we chose will go well with the interior. It looked good on visual comparison, but of course it will be a different thing to have a larger area of ochre. We also went around the subdivision that we are going to live in and looked for fences. There has been some people bugging us to put up a fence right away. Actually, more of concrete walls along the property line. We only have one major problem with that. It costs a lot of money. It may just be hollow blocks, but the quotations that we got from contractors are waaaay above the budget that we initially set. Anyway, looking at the other houses, majority of the houses do not have fences. It indicates two things. Either, people feel secure within the subdivision or people are too poor to afford fencing. Hehe. We'll risk not having a fence yet for a couple of months, try to look for the money and then have the fence built. Fencing, after all, is meant to protect what's inside, but if we put up a fence right away, there might be nothing to protect. :D I just love the fact that we are now deciding for our own house. US! We get to choose what we want and we get to worry about where to get it. It's fun and scary at the same time. We're adults!
